Born and raised in Hamburg, 21-year old Julian moved to Münster a couple of years ago to start his pharmaceutical studies. At early age, Julian already started to get more and more fascinated by natural phenomenons, biological diversity and oceanographic science. 2010 he spent six months in New Zealand and South-Easy Asia. However, during a diving trip in Thailand he got confronted with some of the worlds largest ecological disasters, the environmental plastic pollution. Back in Germany, inspired by “The OceanCleanUp”-founder Boyan Slat and his TEDx talk in Delft, Julian started his reseach on the impact of our society’s plastic pollution with focus on micro plastics. At TEDxMünster Julian talked about the pharmaceutical usage of conventional plastics, about its impact on the environment and a new idea to avoid microplastics in cosmetics in the future.
